Of course you're in the right place. But becoming a swan takes time.

I am the ugly duckling and my sister was the beautiful swan. Did you see the was? She may have been the prettiest, but she couldn't love anybody but her self, she USED people, where i loved people.

In the end, the swan was jealous of the duckling cause people loved the duckling more, it just took the duckling a while to figure that one out.

what i want to say is: being a swan isn't everything, in the end it's the inside people love more, the thing that makes you who you are. And the outside, you can change, if you want, the inside, you can not.

(and in the end, my mom finally saw ME and pulled me out of the shadows. I'm 22 years and learning how to live, it's never to late to take matters in your own hands)

I feel like this a lot too. But, you may get there. It may take a while. It may feel like forever, but one day I'm sure you will be a Swan. I think we all have an ability to slowly transform into wonderful people. Even living an honest, simple, and fulfilling life is amazing in my book.

Swans are the most violent territorial birds in the animal kingdom, and I think swan ducklings are adorable. You are completely lovable the way you are, and it may take you a while, but I promise you will see that.

I've always felt like I was an ugly duckling but honestly I don't care. I am a swan because I am who I am and I love the way I am.

Then according to the comment above you you're quite violent

If you feel ugly and your family knows and they're not helping then that isn't really your family. You'll have to fly away darling, or swim or waddle. Whatever it takes. Somewhere there's a place for you.
Starath Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2013
I've wondered the same thing, except I don't feel like I even belong with my family. And as a disabled person, it's very hard for me to imagine myself as beautiful as a swan.

Give yourself time. You'll feel it. It's taken me 10 years to accept the inkling realization that I might be beautiful already. Sometimes I cry, scared to think it, because what if I'm wrong? I'm not beautiful like everyone else. But that's just the thing. It's what you see inside yourself. It's the joy you find realizing the awesome things about yourself. You're already a swan. You just need time to see it.

Sorry for the book. This secret touched... a little deeper than most things.

When Hans Christian Anderson wrote the Ugly Duckling, he said that this story was the one closest to his heart because its how he felt. He always felt ugly and lost in the world. But look at him! He became famous and loved by millions. Now I know the odds of becoming as famous as him one day are a million to one, but my point I'm trying to say is that at the time he wrote that story, he felt alone. You feel alone right now, but it doesn't mean that it won't one day change and you'll be that beautiful swan you so wish to be. <3

Beauty is only skin deep, what counts is how beautiful you are on the inside,in your heart.

You are only as ugly as you picture yourself to be. Remember that everyone has the power to be a swan.

The more you see how you truly are the swan, the more others will be able to see it in you (:
